A collection selected by Denys Kilham Roberts and originally published by Penguin in 1959 as 'Selected Short Stories.' If "The Monkey's Paw" isn't in your top twenty-five all-time great short stories of the creepy variety, it's only because you haven't read it, yet. And you really should recitify that oversight. It certainly doesn't have to be this copy, but you should pick up *some*body's copy, and let Mr. William Wymark Jacobs make you shiver a little bit. 319 pages, cover illustration by David Gentleman. A bit of slant, sunned spine/edges, moderate waviness (dampstaining) to about ten pages.
